The MZ-2000 and MZ-2200 were not imported for general sale in the U.K.
and we know little about them. However, the graph shows that they are
closely related, and this is confirmed by the fact that, on the MZ-2500
described later in these pages, one position of the 3-way MODE switch
emulates BOTH of these machines.
We have no MZ-2000, but thanks to Glyn John we do have its Disk BASIC
MZ-2Z001, and this boots on the MZ-2500 with the date 1982. Otherwise,
all we have is diagram showing how to connect the MZ-2000 or MZ-2200
to an MZ-1P07 printer. This diagram shows the MZ-2000 looking very similar
to the MZ-80B, with a built-in tape deck and VDU ( which is presumably
Mono ); it also shows that the MZ-2000 requires an external I/O Box,
but the MZ-2200 does not:
We have no MZ-2200, but we do have 2 undated Japanese brochures and
they show a key-board-only machine with 64K main RAM, 2K
text RAM, and 48K VRAM; ALL other peripherals, even the tape deck, are
externally connected. All the peripherals, and system tapes and disks,
are listed with MZ-part numbers; these include Tape BASIC MZ-1Z003 and
Disk BASICS MZ-2Z001 ( B/W ) and MZ-2Z002 ( Colour ); and many of the
pictures in the brochures show colour Monitors:
( The original picture in the SUC-issue
is in B/W, so I place this one here )
